NAME

       gameclock - a simple game clock

SYNOPSIS

       gameclock

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the gameclock command.

       gameclock  is  a  simple  application  designed to track the time spent
       thinking by the players during a chess game. Various ways  of  tracking
       time  are  supported,  with only `countdown' (aka `blitz') and `fisher'
       for now. The graphical interface is keyboard driven and is intended  to
       be  minimal and simple. The code is made to be extensible to other game
       types.

OPTIONS

       These programs follow the usual GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options  starting  with  two  dashes  (--).   A  summary  of options is
       included below.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options. This includes the program's version and
              license.

       -v, --verbose
              Show  progress  information  to  standard output. More `-v' will
              display more information: timestamps then game state engine.

       -f, --fullscreen
              Start the application in fullscreen mode.

KEYBINDINGS

       Most of the interface is keyboard-driven, apart from the initial  clock
       and game configuration.

       space  start the game / end turn

       shift keys
              end  the  turn, but only for the appropriate side (left or right
              side)

       p      pause game

       control-r, escape
              reset game - this resets all counters and clocks to the  initial
              configuration, use this to restart the game.

       f      toggle the fullscreen mode

       control-q
              quit application
